    The results will be discussed in view of achievement of the aim, their significance and their comparison with related researchers.

    is it grammatically or structurally correct?

    Pripositional phrase in view of can not work there, because it means:because of something.
    It has to be replaced by either in regad to or with reference to.

    Yes you can say so, because the preposition ‘of’ has three nouns as its object.’

    In Oxford,
    in view of: having regard to; considering.

    so, it can be used here, isn't it?

    The key word here is "regard" and basically, "having regard to" would usually mean "in reference" or "concerning" or "in consideration" to or of something. And it can be used here, however, it could be more common in this day and age to use "with reference to" or "in regards to" or "referring" or even simply, "regarding."
